The South Coast United Mountain Bikers Club (SCUM) are still smiling after the enormous success of their last event, the “Flow ‘n Five Fest”.  More than a hundred riders participated in the two-day event. 

Notable amongst the prize-winners were the amazing efforts put in by the junior riders. In the Male Junior Pairs category, the ‘Spokeheads’,  Callum Charlesworth (14yrs) and Oliver Macken  (15yrs) -  took out first place, completing 9 laps of the 11km Coondoo course between them.

Not far behind in second place were the “Crank Grinders” – Henry Mackay (10yrs) and Gillie Macken (10yrs) – who smashed out 7 laps. 

Awesome results were also recorded in the Junior Solo Categories. In the boys Matt Rodrigues (17yrs) took out first place completing 9 laps and Harper Hancox (11yrs) in second with 6 laps. Maisy Evans (13yrs) completed 6 laps of the course taking out first place in the Junior Female Solo category.

SCUM have taken round 3 of their Cross Country Endurance series and given it a twist bound to entice any rider. 

On Saturday, September 16, starting at 4pm, riders will take off around the lovingly maintained Butterfly course for 3 hours. 

What’s the twist?  Just to dial up the fun, the last hour or so will, of course, be in pitch-black darkness. 

If you haven’t tried this type of riding, now is the time to charge up the lights and take the thrill factor to the next level.
